11 memorable moments from the final debate between Clinton and Trump
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump entered the final U.S. presidential election debate on Wednesday night trailing in most polls, and hoping a strong performance might shift the race. Here are some of the more memorable moments from that debate.
Trump refuses to say if he’ll accept the election result: “What I’m saying is that I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense.”
Moderator expresses concern Trump is undermining American democracy: “But, sir, there is a tradition in this country — in fact, one of the prides of this country — is the peaceful transition of power and that no matter how hard-fought a campaign is, that at the end of the campaign that the loser concedes to the winner.”
Hillary Clinton mocks him as a conspiracy-theorist: “He claims the court system and (a) federal judge (are) rigged against him. There was even a time when he didn’t get an Emmy for his TV program three years in a row and he started tweeting that the Emmys were rigged against him… This is a mindset. This is how Donald thinks. And it’s funny, but it’s also really troubling… We’ve been around for 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections… He’s talking down our democracy. And I, for one, am appalled that somebody who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position.”
The candidates accuse each other of being Vladimir Putin’s pawns. During an exchange on alleged Russian interference in the election, Trump says Putin has no respect for Clinton. She responds: “That’s because he’d rather have a puppet as president of the United States.” Trump replies: “No puppet. No puppet… You’re the puppet!”
Abortion. Trump promises to appoint anti-abortion judges, and leave policy decisions to states. He uses a graphic image to condemn late-term abortions: “What Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby.” Clinton calls that scare rhetoric, and says late-term decisions are generally made in duress amid health crises.
‘Bad hombres’. Clinton calls his hardline immigration stand un-American, in that it could deport millions without official papers and divide families: “That’s an idea that would rip our country apart.’' Trump responds by referring to four of his guests in the crowd, who lost relatives killed by violent undocumented foreigners: "We have some bad hombres here — and we’re gonna get 'em out.”
'He choked’. Clinton teases her opponent for speaking so frequently about Mexico paying for a border wall, but not when he met Mexico’s president: “He didn’t even raise it — he choked. And then he got into a Twitter war.”
'Such a nasty woman’ — Trump muttered that late in the debate, after Clinton suggested the billionaire businessman might try wriggling out of paying the new employee payroll benefit she wants to introduce.
Trump denies sexually mistreating women. He also denies that he ever insinuated his accusers were too unattractive for him to approach — which he certainly appeared to do last week. Clinton says: “Donald thinks belittling women makes him bigger. He goes after their dignity, their self-worth, and I don’t think there is a woman anywhere who doesn’t know what that feels like.”
Clinton Foundation. She defended her family foundation, which she said helped 11 million people get HIV-AIDS treatment and improved schools in poorer countries. Trump derided it as a patronage tool: “I was (in) Little Haiti the other day in Florida. And I want to tell you, they hate the Clintons, because what’s happened in Haiti with the Clinton Foundation is a disgrace.”
On Syrian refugees. Trump called her plan to increase refugee numbers a Trojan horse, with potential terrorists entering the country. Clinton defended refugees saying: “I am not going to slam the door on women and children. That picture of that little four-year-old boy in Aleppo, with the blood coming down his face while he sat in an ambulance, is haunting. And so we are going to do very careful, thorough vetting.”
Chowder shifted uncomfortably, heart racing. His chest hurt, but he wasn't doing this for him self. He was doing this for them. Nursey was sitting crosslegged on the bed, with dex leaning against the headboar. Chowder was on the wheelie chair, pooping his knuckles in a nervous habit. He didn't meet their eyes when he spoke. "I think I need to break up."
Dex feels like he just got slapped across the face. Nursey feels like he’s going to throw up.
They thought everything was going perfect. They thought all three of them were happy. Where did they go so wrong that suddenly their boyfriend wanted to end things?

TMI tuesday, eh? Alright. Which fictional race has the best penis and why?
Wooh.. That’s a thinker. I suppose it comes down to what ‘best’ is. I mean the easy answer would be any generic shape shifting race since they can have any peen ever. HOWEVER that’s a cop out so I’ll just go with my preference.
Judging strictly on peen and not on the race/person it’s attached to I’d say Elf. That naturally hairless thing is pretty great and since most elves are bigger than humans they’re bound to have a mighty boner…probably.. wimpy elves..
trying to get through reading this SUPER uncomfortable article for class about marketing to specific target groups… but it leads with “cultural” groups and uses extremely cringe worthy racial language…
On 20th anniversary, experts say it's time to review Arctic Council mandate
Over the past 20 years, the Arctic Council has proved to be “Canadian foreign policy at its best,” say the country’s top experts in Northern issues.
But with the global political climate shifting and the race to claim Arctic territory heating up, one of the council’s founders says it’s time to revisit the mandate of the agency.
“There’s a lot of really important issues on the table for the council to deal with,” said Lloyd Axworthy.
The former minister of foreign affairs, who signed the 1996 declaration which established the Arctic Council 20 years ago, is calling for circumpolar nations to come together and create a “revised and stronger council."
"I think the issues simply demand it.”
In particular, Axworthy says the council needs to broaden its scope to include security issues, while ensuring that the increasing number of international observers don’t drown out Northern voices.
Success based on cooperation
Since its inception, the overall objective of the Arctic Council has been to increase cooperation among circumpolar countries and include Indigenous representation from across the region.
Over the past two decades it’s successfully negotiated two binding agreements, including one on Arctic search and rescue.
This highlights the council’s “absolutely revolutionary” decision to include Indigenous groups, argues Michael Byers, an international affairs professor at the University of British Columbia.
“Arctic search and rescue doesn’t actually matter very much to government officials living in Ottawa, Washington or Moscow,” he said.
“But it matters a lot to Arctic Indigenous peoples.”
Focus on the environment
The University of Calgary's Rob Huebert, an expert in Arctic political issues, says the Arctic Council was “a tremendous step forward,” owing its success partly to a decision to exclude the region’s more contentious issues in favour of environmental concerns.
“They picked something everyone could agree on,” he said. "Something at first they thought was small, but then subsequently through their work, was able to show was quite significant.“
The decision to limit the council’s scope was a tactic used to end a stalemate in negotiations with the United States, says Axworthy.
"I agreed at the time that security would not be in the mandate, in return for which they guaranteed or they accepted the participation of Indigenous people."
At the time, he says it was a necessary trade off, but "the time now is to review that.”
Russia-Canada political tension
In particular, he notes his concern about Russia's increased military presence in the region. The geopolitical context raised tensions ahead of last year’s Arctic Council meeting in Iqaluit.
Yesterday, at an Ottawa event to mark the council’s 20th anniversary, the current federal government said it was committed to maintaining “the crucial relationship that must exist between Canada and Russia."
Parliamentary Secretary Pamela Goldsmith-Jones read a speech on behalf of Foreign Minister Stéphane Dion.
"Preventing scientists from these countries from talking is illogical,” reads a transcript of the speech later posted online. “Our government has put an end to this irrationality."
The talk emphasized political change in the Arctic, including a desire by countries to take advantage of "major, new economic projects,” while stressing the council’s ability to foster cooperation.
“Nothing would be worse than [Arctic] countries trying to exploit the maximum instead of working with the other countries to promote responsible stewardship,” the speech read.
“Nothing could be worse than militarization based on mistrust between these countries that are neighbours."
Arctic Council ‘could be watered down’
With renewed interest in economic, transportation and development opportunities in the Arctic, the number of official observers has increased in recent years.
"When we started the council there was probably one or two observers both from governments and some of the civil societies,” Axworthy recalled.
“Now, there’s an application list of 18 countries that want to become observers of the council. I mean, Singapore and Kenya and other places are lining up.”
That added interest presents a potential danger, says Huebert.
“Because so many countries want to join, the question is whether or not they are flooding out other voices.”
Axworthy concurs, adding that it may be time for the Arctic Council to look at “a new kind of arrangement” where observers would be confined to meetings of a kind of “associate’s council.”
“I think it’s really important that the circumpolar people and their governments really retain a very strong leadership and direction of the council,” he said.
“Otherwise it could be watered down and it could be taken over.”
Indigenous leadership important to council’s future
Arctic experts agree the council’s continued success will remain tied to the inclusion of Indigenous leaders.
Byers, Axworthy and Huebert all point to Canadian Inuit leaders and Mary Simon, whose leadership in pushing for the creation of the Arctic Council was invaluable.
“Mary’s a very strong person,” said Axworthy. “As a foreign minister, I had to listen.”
Simon declined to be interviewed for this article, citing her new position as the Minister of Indigenous Affairs’ special representative on Arctic issues.
“There could and should not be a council,” said Axworthy, “unless Indigenous people are represented.”
Consider the following: Since Alteans are a super-strong, shape-shifting alien race, I'd say it's pretty safe to assume they have vastly different internal organs from humans. Those organs probably process nutrients and proteins and the whatnot that are all but alien to human bodies. All of these nutrients are probably jam-packed into the food goo. Now imagine, not long after becoming Team Voltron, the Paladins suddenly start to become weaker. Not only are they getting injured more in (1/3)
battle, but even in their downtime they’re sluggish, grumpy, and tired, and even though they have plenty of food in the Castle it feels like they’re not eating right. Eventually, the human Paladins come down with a dangerous alien disease, all at once, since their immune systems are severely weakened by now, and their bodies deprived of important nutrients that their VASTLY DIFFERENT BODIES need and Alteans have probably never needed. Cue Allura and Coran frantically trying to find
a cure and a solution to their food problem. OR maybe one of the nutrients Altean’s require eventually make them sick from eating such an excessive amount of food goo that their bodies just outright reject food goo from then on. This is just something I’ve been thinking about lately. I don’t trust that food goo.
WHAT A FANTASTIC CONCEPT………. i especially love the idea of them being more prone to injury because of a lack of proper nutrition. lmao i’m thinkin bout once they figure out what’s going allura and coran are like “……we need a book on the care and feeding of humans”
but like. when they all suddenly start vomiting every time they eat. ʘ‿ʘ
Trump is headed for win, says professor who's predicted 30 years of presidential outcomes correctly
Nobody knows for certain who will win on Nov. 8 - but one man is pretty sure: Professor Allan Lichtman, who’s correctly predicted every presidential election since 1984.When we sat down in May, he explained how he comes to a decision. Lichtman’s prediction isn’t based on horse-race polls, shifting demographics or his own political opinions. Rather, he uses a system of true/false statements he calls the “Keys to the White House” to determine his predicted winner.And this […]
